Thank you Mr.Wiliiams, Venus, and Serena, for showing us that all things are possible. You have shown us this time and time again. Their father didnt just teach them tennis, he taught them to have faith and to believe in themselves. I wish Joe Jackson could have been this kind of father towards his children. Joe beat the music out of Michael, which sent him to crash and burn..Self hatred can kill you. I think Michael just wanted his father to love him. It's such a hard thing to over come, because the abuse started when Michael was so young. I wonder what kind of person Michael would have been without his fathers abuse. I guess we will never know. Sad...

This is why you need to plan your kids future. Sometimes regular education doesn’t give kids the best future. Kids need to have talents and captivate those talents to map out a career

Venus looks like her dad, Serena like her Mom. I read somewhere that Serena is closest with her dad while Venus is closest with her mom. Great man and father.

Wow, I just noticed that some of the greatest athletes and entertainers started off from what call a Great Push from their fathers. Examples: Michael Jackson, Tiger Woods, Beyonce and etc... I tip my hat to all of these dads. Why to go!!! I wish there were more like u.

Yup! And today's society underestimate the role of fathers in a marriage. They are vital. So grateful for my dad. Still married and loves my mom 37 years strong!
Annette Elliott (4 месяца назад)
I have noticed his absence at matches lately....is it because she married a white man?

+Andrew Hilton what was the syndrome he said Venus had.. You notice he said with a little bit of attitude Venus don't want to play no more cause of her disease she say she tired I was thinking what do you expect... Serena went in played a year after having almost dyeing from having a emergency c-section that's why her performance is down I bet it's so she wouldn't let her father down. I watch videos from when they were smaller and Serena would say I'm always trying to be like my sister eat the same thing, like the same color, same pet.. So no wonder she is close to her dad she wants acceptance that she is good as Venus but she is better than Venus now

He has a disease idiots , he getting older , you can't travel alot when your older , it's bad for your health especially when you literally have a syndrome

+Rawjudgement you should listen to what other tennis players say about her - male and female - then decide. They know her! And they agree with "nice".

Nicest? Umm not Serena and the fact that he even said in this video that he trained them under situations where they have to keep a cool head, not Serena lol, she needs to train in that part again.

I don't think we can adequately fathom what this man, Richard Williams, did. He believed beyond overwhelming proof and circumstances and chose to craft life after that point in a direction of tennis not knowing what the outcome would be. We talk about faith without works. This is what it means it live by faith and not by sight. HALLELUJAH to the Lamb of God!!

If professional tennis has a Hall of Fame there should be and Xzibit Chronicle the journey Richard Williams took his two daughters on to make them two of the greatest tennis players to play the game,

Chavvah (4 месяца назад)
I Repent. Back in the day, I didn't think too much of this man because I didn't understand him when he spoke. But I was dead wrong. My perception of his appearance or language or anything else is unimportant. Unlike many parents, he had a goal and he set out to accomplish it. His parenting was deliberate. He taught them extremely important principles, whether they had succeeded in tennis or not. He didn't say, "I don't know how to play tennis," he LEARNED how to play tennis and then TAUGHT his girls. Whole books can be written on Richard Williams. I'm glad he made it to the hall of fame.

When you go from humble to greatness that quickly in one generation it means that you always had the ingredients for greatness or rather you are of a Great People.

Wow. You could not make this up. Can you imagine if a film with this story line was made 30 years ago? People would think it was just a far fetched story...a poor black man in America raising not one but two amazing tennis players?? Complete and total respect to Richard Williams and both of his glam slam winning daughters.

I think that it was very brilliant and loving, yes loving, for Mr.Williams to toughen the girls up under the ugly insults the young people hurled at them. Preparation is key. He, unfortunately, knew the kind of reception his daughters would receive in this world. Because of their thick skin, they were able to focus and they were able to rise!

Richard's World Traveler (6 месяцев назад)
So, he is the mastermind. I don't understand how he said he didn't know about tennis, but he was teaching them. Hopefully his daughters have taken care of him financially.
